Charles IV, king of Bohemia and Moravia and Holy Roman Emperor, was primarily responsible for Prague's current architectural beauty. He commissioned the Charles Bridge in 1357 to connect Old Town and Mala Strana (Lesser Town). Throughout the years has been decorated with 30 statues although today they are all replicas.
Madonna and St. Bernard
Madonna, St. Dominic, and St. Thomas Aquinas
Calvary, Holy Crucifix
Lots of entertainment on the bridge during a Sunday afternoon stroll.
St. Cyril and Methodius
St. John the Baptist
John of Nepomuk was very popular with poor people. In the place where the saint was thrown into the river there's a sculptural cross on a marble plate, both with 5 stars. If you lay your hands on the crosses with each finger touching one of the stars your secret wish will come true.
St. Norbert, Vaclav and Sigsimund
St. John of Nepomuk - It's lucky to rub the statue.
St. Anthony of Padua
St. Jude Thaddeus
St. Philip Benitius
St. John of Matha, Felix of Valois and Ivan
The Dream of St. Luthgard
St. Nicholas of Tolentino
